    Old demos are no more?

    I strictly remember I downloaded Dead Space demo on PSN a while back (a year ago, maybe more) but back then I shat my pants and deleted it. Now I finally think I grew a pair, so I wanna try and beat the demo to see if I should get the game, but WOOPS, there isn't any?! I didn't know they removed those...

    If I use search - I can only find full game, dlc, other crap like trailers but no demo.

    Any idea where can I get those? Or maybe I'm doing something wrong and it's still in PS store somewhere?

    The game has been out since 08, right? I would say they took it off the store.

    If you downloaded it before it should still be in your download list on the PSN.

    Yeah, it's bullsh*t.


    I wanted to try Katamari again, but OH NO~....

    What's even worse is when they just slap games on without even a decent trailer, let alone a bloody demo. How do they expect us to buy into these games?

    You didn't say you looked in your download list. Check there, it should be there.

    That's the weirdest shit ever. I CAN in fact download it from my downloads list, but it's nowhere to be found listed on PS store! What the fuck is up with that?!!

    And what about those demos that I missed out on completely, like FEAR demo? God dammit Sony!!







    Thanks for all your help guys. Gonna try and not shit my pants this time and if anyone finds out how to get other old demos - please post here..

    Nah you can only download deleted content if you have downloaded it before. But the good news is, if you click on download on something but then cancel the download it still goes into your download list.so what

    I tend to do is click download on new content, cancel it then if I'm interested in trying it at a later date I can just download it from my list.

    It cost 8 $, thatīs like one meal.........get it.
    Hand-bra Jeans

    The exposure of the female's soft body. Whether you like it or not, being naked to the waist and the mismatch between the hard and thick jeans. The true essence is the union of girly and boyish styles.At the same time, the hand-bra forces even the current girls that lack shameful feelings to make an embarrassing pose. Depending on how it is seen, it also shows a form of eroticism by making it look like the girls are rubbing their own breasts.

    That's so weird because the last time I check the Bioshock demo was still up, and that's been out since 07. Though it might be gone now.

    There's no gamefly where I live, and no game rental stores at all. In any case I wouldn't rent any game ever because I feel that it hurts the industry that I'm so fond of. I prefer buying games.

    Maybe you missed the greater point - I needed to see if I'd enjoy it before I bought it (that's what demos are for!), because on previous attempt it didn't impress me (I still can't get into this over-shoulder camera view) and it was scarry as fuck (not in the way like "this game has really creepy atmosphere" kind of scary, but in "you°'re slowly walking through a dark and silent hallway and shit pops up screaming loud as fuck" kind of way.)

    It was out for PS3 in 2008, but yeah it's not on there neither.

    I don't think it is Sony's fault. Correct me if I am wrong but companies pay for space on the store, My guess is EA doesn't feel it is worth paying for space for a demo of a 3+ year old game.

    That doesn't make sense to me (The fact that it's no longer on the store) Surely if they don't wanna pay or whatever for the demo to be up there, they wouldn't want to pay for people to be able to still download it off of their download list?

    Seems daft to me..

    It may be on your download list, doesn't mean you would still be able to play it. For example, I had The Run demo and it was working, then the next week I tried it and it said it "expired". I'm sure more demos are like that too.

    This ^. It's not Sony's fault or EA's, why would they pay money to keep a demo up that almost nobody will download now, it's a watse of their money.
